  • ""Jest lodowaty kwiecień roku 2009. Prokurator Teodor Szacki nie pracuje już w Warszawie, pożegnał się z przeszłością i karierą, by zamieszkać w sielankowym Sandomierzu. Gdzie miał zaczą̨ć nowe wspaniałe życie, a został samotnym i budzącym nieufność obcym. Tuż po Wielkanocy pod murami starej synagogi zostają znalezione zwłoki powszechnie lubianej działaczki społecznej o nieskazitelnej reputacji. W nieprzyjaznej rzeczywistości Szacki dostaje śledztwo tylko dlatego, że jako jedyny nie jest powiązany z denatką. Szybko dowiaduje się, że całe miasto może mieć wielkie tajemnice. Powracają dawne winy i zbrodnie, w XXI wieku odzywają antysemickie przesądy i legenda o krwi; histeria i psychoza skutecznie ryglują wszystkie drzwi i usta. Wsrod zagadek i kłamstw proklurator próbuje odnaleźć ziarno prawdy."--Page 4 of cover."

  • "After a bloodless body is found in an old fortress, State Prosecutor Teodor Szacki tackles anit-Semitism in Poland."
  • "It is spring 2009, and prosecutor Teodor Szacki is no longer working in Warsaw--he has said goodbye to his family and to his career in the capital and moved to Sandomierz, a picturesque town full of churches and museums. Hoping to start a "brave new life," Szacki instead finds himself investigating a strange murder case in surroundings both alien and unfriendly. The victim is found brutally murdered, her body drained of blood. The killing bears the hallmarks of legendary Jewish ritual slaughter, prompting a wave of anti-Semitic paranoia in the town, where everyone knows everyone. The murdered woman's husband is bereft, but when Szacki discovers that she had a lover, the husband becomes the prime suspect. Before there's time to arrest him, he is found murdered in similar circumstances. In his investigation Szacki must wrestle with the painful tangle of Polish-Jewish relations and something that happened more than sixty years earlier."@en
